Communication Accommodation Theory

Edited by Howard Giles

Most people modify their ways of speaking, writing, texting, and e-mailing, and so on, according to the people with whom they are communicating. This fascinating book asks why we 'accommodate' to others in this way, and explores the various social consequences arising from it.

Summary:   DEAR LINGUISTS,

FIRST OF ALL, LET ME THANK ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE TAKEN THE TIME TO SEND
ME ALL SORTS OF INFORMATION ON THE SYNTACTIC CALQUE. MOST OF IT HAS
BEEN REFERENCES TO PREVIOUS WORK ON THAT OR RELATED FIELDS, AND
REFERENCES TO ARTICLES AND BOOKS THAT WILL COME OUT IN THE NEAR
FUTURE. I'M NOT INCLUDING THE LIST OF REFERENCES HERE BECAUSE IIT IS
VERY EXTENSIVE, BUT IF ANYONE WOULD LIKE TO RECEIVE IT, PLEASE LET ME
KNOW.

ALSO, I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY MORE COMMENTS ON THE NOTION OF SYNTACTIC
CALQUE ITSELF, FROM WHATEVER FIELD OF INTEREST. THANK YOU AGAIN,
